Ubuntu hotplug crash on bootup
I am using Ubuntu 5.10 dual boot with Windows XP Homo.
Ubuntu crashes on boot up at Hotplug stage. I have narrowed the problem down to audio hardware.
I can overcome the crashing by rebooting into Ubuntu recovery mode, typing in 'modprobe snd_hda_intel' and then reboot into Ubuntu as normal.
From there on I can reboot Ubuntu many times without problem.
If I boot into Windows (I dont even need to log in, the Windows login screen is enough), following this, If I reboot back to Ubuntu, the hotplug problem returns.
Does anybody have any knowledge of how to overcome this problem? I thought maybe the alsa-base file can be edited and the line that refers to snd_hda_intel maybe could be moved further down the list?
Or is there something I can alter in one of the init.rd files?
I hope some onw can help, as I am building this machine for someone who is willing to give Linux a try, but they wont be impressed if Linux is not working properly.
